She doesn't get the Prednisolone every day. I only give it to her when she is having trouble getting around at all. The GC she gets daily. That stuff can also suppress her immune system so I give it to her as sparingly as possible.

Hmm. I have never heard that GC supresses the immune system. Do you have sources?

Sorry I wasn't clear. She's on the GC every day. That stuff has no negative side effects as far as I can tell.
The Prednisolone can suppress the immune system as well as having liver implications if taken over a period of time.
I've heard of steroid use to suppress the immune system in people as well.
